Legal Answers
256 Questions Answered

Q. What is going to happen? Am I going to get my license taken away from me? How do I prevent that?
A: You are facing a license suspension if you receive a conviction on the new ticket and they revoke your supervision on the first ticket. Two convictions within 24 months at your age will cause a license suspension. However, you are eligible for supervision twice within a 12 month period, but that is at the discretion of the Judge. An attorney can certainly assist you and ensure you receive the best possible result in court.
Q. Best approach to police officer writing down wrong information on citation?
A: I agree with Mr. Ooink - the officer’s credibility may be undermined at trial using the various errors on the citation.
Q. No fee on citation but court date for speeding in school zone, what to expect?
A: My colleagues are correct. You cannot receive court supervision, which means an automatic conviction unless the charge is amended. Two convictions within 24 months (under the age of 21) will cause a license suspension. Fines/court costs and traffic school are standard under these circumstances. An attorney can certainly help achieve the best possible outcome and keep this offense off of your public record.
Q. Okay, I have a court date on June 26. But i’m flying out on June 8 and not coming back until July 28! Can I postpone it?
A: Depending on a couple of factors, there are different options. More information is needed - courthouse/county and the type of offense. You can file a motion at the courthouse to bring the case into court early and request to reset the initial court date. You may also be able to hire an attorney to appear in court and handle the matter on your behalf while you are traveling.
Q. I am 16 years old and I was speeding 25 over. can I do supervision or will my license get suspended? what will happen?
A: You must appear in court with a parent due to your age. Supervision is typical for a first ticket but it is up to the Judge. You would have to complete traffic safety school as well. Your license would only be suspended for two convictions within 24 months. Supervision does not count as a conviction.
Q. I was denied court supervision for a texting while driving ticket because I received court supervision for a first
A: A second cell phone offense is treated as a moving violation (note: a first will count as a moving violation beginning in July under the new law). Because you are over 21, it would take 3 convictions within 12 months to cause a license suspension. However, if you want to remove the conviction, you or your attorney may be able to file a motion to vacate and request supervision in court.
Q. If I got a speeding ticket and immediately came home and I paid it and realized I want court supervision, can I still?
A: Contact the Clerk’s Office at the courthouse where the ticket is assigned to see if a conviction was already entered. At this point, I would assume that a motion to vacate would need to be filed at the courthouse if you want to keep the offense off of your record. The case can be brought before the Judge and you can request court supervision. An attorney can assist you with this process.
Q. How Can I get a 2017 ticket amended from above 15- 25 mph to below 14?
A: An attorney may be able to file the motion and explain the circumstances to the prosecutor in order to secure a more favorable outcome.
Q. Im currently under C. S. for a speeding ticket and just received a ticket for no proof of insurance. Will this effect it
A: Bring the proof of insurance to court covering the day that the ticket was issued. It will be dismissed. It will not effect your court supervision.
